Beach Retreat & Lodge

Recreation and relaxation unlimited

Set between the mountains and the lake, Beach Retreat & Lodge is the perfect jumping off point for year-round fun. And while one could argue that the waterfront location is the most prominent feature, the thoughtful amenities and studied service -- which gives guests a sense of staying at a friend's lake house rather than a hotel -- is something to boast about, too.

It's so easy to stay in the moment at Beach Retreat & Lodge, because it's so wonderful year-round.

What it's like

Combine a 1,000 ft. pier (the longest on Lake Tahoe), a full-service tiki bar and beachfront cabana, fire pits and beach volleyball, and you get a serious emphasis on spending time outdoors. But outer beauty aside, elegance and comfort, in the form of premium bedding and linens, gas fireplaces, and Keurig coffeemakers, thrive inside.

Independent spirit

Everything Tahoe has to offer, all in one glorious locale

Small touches

Pet-friendly lodging is great for guests who can't stand to leave their buddy back home. 

Eat and drink

With bacon-topped sliders and chili available apres ski (and breakfast burritos in the AM), the Tavern caters to a comfort food, football appetite.  And the west-facing Boathouse on the Pier, serving a menu edging toward fine dining and hosting acoustic music, offers a prime view of the always-stunning Lake Tahoe sunset.

And more

Mark Twain once called Lake Tahoe "the fairest picture the whole Earth affords." And Beach Retreat & Lodge cashes in on the bounty. Hike a nearby portion of the 168 mile trail (Tahoe Rim Trail) that encircles the lake. With kayak, paddleboard, powerboat, and waterski rentals available, spending time on the famously blue water is a cinch. Skiing and snowboard? The world-class Heavenly Mountain is a seven minute drive away.
